Handplanes - The Wegener Brothers

Jon in California

Tom in Queensland

So you have these brothers, one on one side, the other on the other side, both doing really similar stuff, pushing the use of wood, both a part of the alaias return to the water, and it seems churning out the odd hand plane, I'm sure if you called, they'd be able to make you one..

...And in the true handplane tradition, the buzz about making your own is also allowed, accepted and encouraged.. Jon with Cyrus Sutton will also sell you a little pack with paulownia which is here if you want one...And theres even a little instructional video... go have go. no excuses now.
Yes, you can just rip down a fence post, cut up old furniture, or steal mcdonalds trays, but sometimes, you wanna do things right.. and that means a nice hunk of wood. worth doing, worth doing right.
